Lauki/doodhi/bottlegourd paratha and microwave lauki kheer - bottle gourd recipes

I was never too fond of bottlegourd until I tasted the parathas our Maharashtrian friend made for us one evening. It is a regular thing at my place now. It tastes delicious, easy to make, less time consuming and taken with spicy curds/raitha.

Ingredients

Bottlegourd- grated
1 cup
Wheat flour
2 cup
Salt
to taste
Chilly- chopped fine
2
Turmeric powder
1tsp
Coriander- chopped fine.

Steps

  1. Mix all the ingredients together and make a soft dough adding little oil. There will be no necessity to add water as grated bottle gourd will be quite watery. Make small balls of the dough and roll them out to small circles. Heat a tava/girdle and cook the parathas on both the sides. Brush little ghee on it. Serve hot.

Kheer with bottlegourd?? yes ...indeed..I saw this recipe in Tarla dalal's book on microwave cooking. And made this in the microwave. It was creamy and delicious, a hit at my place.
